100 lb. Club - Today I saw something that I have NEVER seen before...

02-08-2009, 01:34 AM

This is what it looks like:

Who knew?! Certainly not me! :dunno::eek::fr::yikes::shrug:

I was bored, and really liked the outfit I was wearing today, so I decided to take some pictures (which is what I always do when I'm bored, hehe! :lol:). It occurred to me that in all the times I've taken progress pictures, I have never once taken a "rear view" shot, so I was kind of curious... And I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised! :dizzy:

Anyways, I just thought I'd share. :o Anyone else who takes progress pictures, I SO recommend that you start taking back shots! I wish I had taken them throughout my weight loss, cuz it was so cool to see a "side" of myself that I literally have never seen before.

(Ps. If anyone's curious, I also took front and side view shots... Someone take the camera away from me, LOL! ;))

Hi Meredith - I just looked at your progress pics, and WOW - WHAT AN INSPIRATION you are! I'm sure you've probably posted this information somewhere else, but this is the first time I've stumbled across your pics - so can you entertain an old lady and share HOW you did this?? I'd love to hear what lifestyle changes you've made and how you've made such incredible progress! Thanks, and best luck with continued success!

02-09-2009, 12:57 PM

Just Fabulous Meredith!!!! So Cute!!!

02-09-2009, 04:47 PM
looking good!

02-09-2009, 09:52 PM
Wow! Thank you SO much everyone! I'm always paranoid of seeming like I'm overly vain or something when I post pictures, hehe, but the members on here never fail to be SO awesome and supportive... It still stuns me (and probably always will) to hear actual positive feedback about my body and appearance, since I'm so used to feeling ugly because of my weight. I guess I have a bit of body dysmorphia, cuz I still look at myself and think "FAT," heh, and it makes me forget how far I've come. But somehow reading all of your kind words seems to help me to temporarily see myself through your eyes instead, and I can't even express how much I appreciate it! You're all amazing. :D

this might sound weird, but looking at you now, you'd never know you were once a fat girl!!! you look perfectly average and normal, how fun is that???
WOW, thank you so much! For some reason that really struck a chord with me. I even got a little teary-eyed! :o Even though I'm aware that I do look different now, I still feel like the same old fat girl--cuz that's what I was for so long, so that must be who I *really* am, you know? Being a "normal" sized person has always seemed totally out of the question for me, so I can barely fathom the idea that someone who met me today wouldn't even know that I used to be obese. It's just too surreal!! So being told that I'm just a normal, average-sized girl has got to be one of the biggest boosts you could ever give me. Thank you! :^: And I hope I don't sound too corny, heh.

02-28-2009, 11:21 AM
jeez I hope I look as good as you do 10 lbs from now!! can I say HOTTIE:)

02-28-2009, 02:45 PM
You are so adorable. Your progress has been tremendous, and your attitude is a joy. I always look forward to your posts when I'm lurking around here :)

03-01-2009, 02:16 AM
Ahh Meredith! I LOVE your posts, you're so cute!

03-01-2009, 10:00 PM
Great back pic. I also checked out your progress pics and you have come a long way. You look great!!!

03-01-2009, 10:35 PM
you are so cute!! keep up the amazing work!!

03-01-2009, 10:38 PM
I have to ask.....where did you get that outfit? :)

03-02-2009, 12:13 PM
You look fantastic Meredith.
Congrats on your progress. You are a true inspiration!!

03-02-2009, 12:32 PM
I have to ask.....where did you get that outfit? :)
Lol, I'm flattered that you want to know! Let me see, the shirt was a gift, but I believe it is from Charlotte Russe... And the sweater is from Old Navy. :D Losing weight really has made me a clothing addict--I always liked getting dressed up and everything, but I have so much more access to cute clothes now! It's hard not to go in and buy the entire store, heh. :o

03-02-2009, 02:27 PM
Wow you look amazing!

03-02-2009, 04:26 PM
I love taking rear view shots, since all my weight is my tummy, so i look tiny from behind.
So i look better from behind :P

Lookin good by the way :)

03-02-2009, 05:40 PM

03-08-2009, 01:05 PM
ah i have to add that ive just started my journey and i took starting pics and they did include my back and never having seen that angle i was horrified! i look like an ogre haha. im very close to my first mini goal though, so hopefully when i do those pictures i can see an improvement and one day hopefully have a back as cute as yours!

03-08-2009, 01:28 PM
You look so good :D

03-24-2009, 12:38 AM
you look GREAT! i am at a similar starting weight to yours and i'm just having so much trouble getting started...i am on a low fat diet but its difficult to find time to work out, whats your secret? do you have a work out method or any tips on how you kept yourself motivated!

03-24-2009, 08:28 AM
I'm impressed! You look wonderful.
